Mostly Wordless Wednesday: Sliding Into The Sick

I can feel it creeping over me
Sliding like a soggy, steamy, feverish blanket
Of sore muscles and aching limbs
The occasional cough sneaks in uninvited
Setting off a wave of heat
That turns my eyes grainy
And echoes through my aching throat
I long to crawl back into bed, on a heating pad
Sleep the day away
But I haven't won the lottery this week
So here I am
Trying to deny the sick that's already stomping on my soft palate
